Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran took to Instagram after an eight-month hiatus to share some exciting news: he is a proud father!
Last month, reports came out that Ed was expecting with his wife Cherry Seaborn. As the news was revealed, it was also shared that the couple’s child would be arriving sometime this summer. Well, their little one is here!

Ello! A quick message from me as I have some personal news that I wanted to share with you… Last week, with the help of an amazing delivery team, Cherry gave birth to our beautiful and healthy daughter – Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here. We hope that you can respect our privacy at this time. Lots of love and I’ll see you when it’s time to come back, Ed x
Ed posted a simple photo to his Instagram page: an image of a striped crocheted blanket with baby socks lying on top of it. In the caption, he shared that the couple welcomed their baby last week. And… it’s a girl! He also announced her name: Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran. Such a beautiful name. The name Lyra is a Latin name meaning “Harp,” a great musical nod for the Shape of You singer.
The singer-songwriter appears to be elated to be a father. “We are completely in love with her. Both mum and baby are doing amazing and we are on cloud nine over here.”
He also asked that the privacy of him and his family be respected at this time. This comes as no shock to most celebrities, but especially Ed as he tends to keep his private life just that – private. We wish Ed, Cherry, and Lyra all the best!
